Spiritual Capital Investment
July 17, the Day of Spiritual Capital Investment energies prompt people to know how to capitalize on their investments. If today is your birthday or if you resonate with today’s energies then the words “capitalize” and “investment” suggests money, but can also serve as metaphors for other areas (career, family) into which those born on this day put their energies.Even if they are met with failure or stagnation, July 17 people usually manage to produce something positive from their projects or endeavors, as they so often turn misfortunes to their advantage. In this respect they are true capitalists.
July 17 people have “the long breath” and invest for the future, rather than seeking immediate returns. They do not fear a lack of initial profit or results from their projects but are content to watch them grow. In some respects they are akin to gardeners. Careful preparation, sowing at the right time, cultivating and finally harvesting all come naturally to them. They are also unafraid to switch horses in mid-stream if it is to their advantage.
July 17 and The Tower
The Tower, which in one version of the Tarot deck shows both a king falling from a lightning-struck tower and the builder of this tower being killed by a blow to the head. The Tower symbolizes the impermanence of not only physical structures but also of relationships or vocations in our lives. The changes wrought are often sudden and swift. The positive elements of the card include overcoming catastrophe and confronting challenges; however; the Tower cautions against rising unjustifiably high and risking destruction at the hands of one's own invention. June 16 people are again reminded by the Tarot to beware of fanciful enterprises, but also of greed.
The Tower and the Bible
2 Kings 9:30 -37 30 And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window. 31 And as Jehu entered in at the gate, she said, Had Zimri peace, who slew his master? 32 And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, Who is on my side? who? And there looked out to him two or three eunuchs. 33 And he said, Throw her down. So they threw her down: and some of her blood was sprinkled on the wall, and on the horses: and he trode her under foot. 34 And when he was come in, he did eat and drink, and said, Go, see now this cursed woman, and bury her: for she is a king's daughter. 35 And they went to bury her: but they found no more of her than the skull, and the feet, and the palms of her hands. 36 Wherefore they came again, and told him. And he said, This is the word of the LORD, which he spake by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, In the portion of Jezreel shall dogs eat the flesh of Jezebel: 37 And the carcase of Jezebel shall be as dung upon the face of the field in the portion of Jezreel; so that they shall not say, This is Jezebel.
The Tower and the Mushroom
The Tower energies manifest in the Mushroom. Sudden change leads to destruction and upheaval. Mushrooms are the instigators in the forest. The speak foundational healing. Mushrooms are decomposers; they convert material that is no longer useful into something living things can eat. They break down and absorb environmental contaminants, recycle decaying materials, and bring nutrients to the soil. Use tragedy to nourish the bedrock of your soul. Let the current crisis consume the false narratives you have created, and rewrite your story. Now is your chance to play at the game of life anew. As mushrooms build the immune system, allow yourself to build strength through resilience. Mushrooms reproduce by shooting their spores through the air in bursts. Once the first shock of profound change has passed, let new energy be released.
